All is well tonight, Aiden is stable with the breathing tube removed. He has been off of the respirator for 36 hours and doing great. He is looking better each time we go back and see him.
He enjoys the touch of his parents, friends and family.
We now have this thing removed out of his mouth. They started the feeding this afternoon. So far all looks well. They had started some medication for the anticipation of feeding for 2 days now.
Ashley was able to hold him for a while this week, she was so excited. Thank you A.C. for the help and support for that. I did get to hold him today as well. Sarah took my camera card before I could copy the pictures, so they are coming soon. Also pics of the boys coming in to see Aiden are coming soon too. The boys were very excited to be able to see their little brother. They had to put on the gown, gloves, the dr hat and a mask. They looked so cute, the nursing staff gave them stethescopes, tongue depressors, and all the other stuff that would make them think they were doctors. They were saying, " Look we are doctors". It was so cute.
Aiden has been moved from his little bed to an incubator. Its a change to see him inside a clear box, but the nurses all say that it is best for him and also its an improvement for him.
Thanks to all of our family and friends that have called, texted, or came by. It goes to show a person how much others think about others. It truly shows compassion. Its a blessing to give and recieve. I hope all have enjoyed seeing Aiden as much as we like to show him to our friends and family. We are so proud of our little miracle. He truly is a miracle!
